Chainmaille Octopus Hood: Eight Arms to Hold You

Chainmaille Octopus Hood: Eight Arms to Hold You
If Octopi had been on land during medieval times, this is what they would have looked like. That’s a scary thought. King Arthur would have been replaced by King Octo and the Knights of the Drowned Table.

Real Working “Transformer” Can Turn from Car to Robot with People Inside

Real Working “Transformer” Can Turn from Car to Robot with People Inside
I’d like to think that at some point in the evolution of Transformers, they looked as cheesy as this car one from Brave Robotics, Asratec Corp, and Sansei Technologies.

This Crazy Rube Goldberg Machine Is a Tape Dispenser
What if I told you that it takes a full five minutes to get a single piece of tape out of this insane Rube Goldberg machine? Hey, it’s about the journey, not the tape. At least that’s what I would keep telling myself if I had to wait on this machine to get said tape.

Pokémon Nanoblocks: I Choose You, Blockasaur!

Pokémon Nanoblocks: I Choose You, Blockasaur!
If you’ve never played with Nanoblocks, you really should. These nifty little building blocks are much smaller than LEGO bricks, which means they can be used to make more precise shapes. It’s like the difference between an SD screen and an HD screen, where more pixels = greater detail.

This Lifelike Animatronic Head Doesn’t Think This Looks Like Anything

This Lifelike Animatronic Head Doesn’t Think This Looks Like Anything
I’m a huge fan of Westworld, as I’m sure many of you are. The thought of androids who don’t even know they aren’t real and look just like us is a bit unnerving. It looks like the folks at Garner Holt Productions have created a creepy head almost worthy of being a Host in our favorite theme park of debauchery.

Guy Beatboxes Superhero, TV, and Movie Themes, and Tugs ’80s Heartstrings
Australian beatboxer Tom Thum has put together a medley using nothing but his voice to recreate theme songs from some of the cartoons, TV shows, and movies that anyone from the ’80s will remember. The video starts with him thanking folks for telling him his throat looks like a vagina, which is weird.

Back to the Fury Road

Back to the Fury Road
All Hollywood seems to know how to do these days is make remakes, reboots, rehashes, and retreads. One of the movies that they haven’t touched yet is Back to the Future, and they must never be allowed to soil this classic franchise.
